Blog Tour Book Review: I Can Love Like Jesus

I-Can-Love-Like-Jesus-Blog-Tour-BannerI don’t review a lot of books on this blog, because I’d rather be writing books. But somehow I got on the list of reviewers for children’s books, and I couldn’t be happier. They don’t take long to read and review, and it gives me something fun to do with my kids. It’s a win-win arrangement. I get a free book. 🙂 The author gets a review (and coming from an author’s point of view–those can be hard to get–hint hint if you’ve read my books and haven’t posted a review).

My Review:

This is a sweet little picture book about loving others. I read it with my two-and-a-half-year-old after he had a three-band-aid injury, and it helped him feel better. He especially enjoyed the pictures. My seven-year-old twins liked the book too. One said she liked the great message about loving others. The other said she liked the way the children in the book were following Jesus’s example.

The message of the book is simple, but so important. There is so much hatred and unkindness in this world, and this is a great reminder that if we want to be like the Savior, we should start by treating others they way He would.
